FEATURED WORKS

Saturday Night Tuberculosis, Solo Piano.

This piece was commissioned by Hobart pianist Jack Barnes in 2014. Jack’s flair for rhythmic and percussive works made for a clear brief: a percussive and virtuosic work bursting at the seams with adrenaline with flashes of progressive rock, jazz, and drum and bass.
